Summer Swimming Pledge for the Whole Family
When it comes to keeping kids safe in and around water, we’re all in the same boat. That’s why we’re working with our friends from the Consumer Product Safety Commission to encourage all kids and adults to take the Pool Safely Pledge this summer. Whether it’s agreeing to never swim alone or designating a water watcher every time, it only takes one minute to get the water tips you and your kids need to have fun and be safe.
Prepare Your Family for Severe Weather
When severe weather strikes you often have only a few minutes to respond and seek shelter. It is essential for you and your family to be prepared in an emergency. Assemble an emergency disaster kit, and practice your emergency plan frequently with your entire family. If you need to take shelter, be sure every family member puts on hard-soled footwear and take your emergency disaster kit with you.
Additional supplies and equipment may be necessary for family members with disabilities or medical conditions.
Don’t forget your pets will also need supplies, including food, water, collars and leashes. For smaller animals you may want to have a crate or a cage to help keep them safe and close.
